Abstract

This handsomely produced volume of texts and melodies from the "Ruth Rubin Yiddish Folksong Archive" contains seventy songs, which, except for six, were hitherto unpublished. Most of them were recorded by members of the Ethnological Section of Haifa Music Museum and A.M.L.I. Library, and by Ruth Rubin herself from informants who came to Israel from Poland, Hungary, Rumania, Czechoslovakia, Bessarabia, Russia, and the Ukraine. In addition to the Yiddish texts, there are Hebrew and English notes and summaries of songs.
